Don’t fret about missing out on the title everyone is talking about — I Lost My Body is available for streaming on Netflix starting from Friday, November 29! In a Parisian laboratory, a severed hand escapes its unhappy fate and sets out to reconnect with its body in this Cannes Critics’ Week selection. During a hair-raising escapade across the city, the extremity fends off pigeons and rats alike to reunite with pizza boy Naoufel. Its memories of Naoufel and his love for librarian Gabrielle may provide answers about what caused the hand’s separation, and a poetic backdrop for a possible reunion between the three. Based on the novel “Happy Hand” by Academy Award® nominee Guillaume Laurant (Amelie).
Jérémy Clapin’s I Lost My Body claimed the Nespresso Grand Prize in Critics’ Week at Cannes as well as both the Cristal for Best Feature Film and the Audience Prize at Annecy. Additionally, the film also recently won the COLCOA 23rd edition’s Los Angeles Film Critics Association jury award and the audience award in Los Angeles!
